Following in the footsteps of Bobby Flay, Ron Ben-Israel, and Scott Conant, Pat LaFrieda is apparently the latest name-brand New Yorker to get his own Food Network show. MeatMen (we would have gone with Beef Boss) will premiere on the network on April 9. And still: Biker Chef lingers on the shelf, just waiting for some brave network to pick it up. [Eater NY, Related]
